Crickets (Acheta domesticus) are a very popular feeder insect for reptiles, amphibians, invertebrates, and other exotic pets. There's a common myth that crickets should be avoided as a feeder because they're low-quality nutrition and more likely to infect your pet with parasites. So here's some facts to clear things up:

  • Crickets are a good source of essential nutrients.
  • They are no more likely to have parasites than any other feeder.
  • Crickets' natural movement stimulates reptiles and amphibians to eat.
  • A feeder insect is only as good as the food it's fed and the quality of the facility that produced it.

Pinhead crickets are very tiny, freshly hatched crickets. They make great feeders for very small reptiles, amphibians, and invertebrates, such as microgeckos, dart frogs, young praying mantids, and tarantula slings.

For best results, use crickets as part of a rotation of feeder insects such as dubia roaches, black soldier fly larvae, and hornworms. Variety is key to a balanced diet!
